Business Resources

CEDARSCultivating Entrepreneurial Development at our RootS, is a voluntary grassroots collaboration between the communities of Les Cheneaux and St. Ignace to inspire and support business ownership in Mackinac County. We do this by connecting current and prospective business owners and managers with resources, professional assistance and ideas. We are part of the Creating Entrepreneurial Communities (CEC) Project administered by the Michigan Land Policy Institute.

Many of our resource partners are linked here. Please use this page as a gateway to additional information about starting and managing a business, and contact our Chambers of Commerce for additional assistance!  
The following web sites contain exciting resources and information for new and existing businesses. All of these resources are based in Michigan and several are based in the Upper Peninsula.
